5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended 10 Aug 2009
By Hel S
Format:Audio CD
This CD contains three meditations - swimming underwater in a vast ocean, exploring an ancient city in the rainforest and discovering an igloo sanctuary in the midst of a snowstorm. The narration is in a neutral, female English accent, and there are various sound effects which I found very helpful in taking me to the places described. There is also a little background music to help the listener into the meditation which stops during the actual meditative phase itself.

I've tried guided meditations previously and they have had one aspect in common which I've found off putting - they are too exact about what is happening and what everything looks like. This CD is very different - you are in an ocean, a rainforest, a snowstorm...but you are left to imagine the minutiae of the locations yourself. Yes, you are guided, but it's never intrusive.

I use these, and other meditations from the same company every day in order to relax, and I've found them overall to be a great experience. I do have my favourites, but that in no way diminishes the other meditations.

A great buy, and I'm very happy to have come across them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well made, but flaws in the meditations 1 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD on the pretext that it would help relax me prior to a nights sleep and while there were definitely parts of that did help, generally I was not very relaxed by the places used within the meditations.

On the first track, you find yourself listening to an Ocean mediation. While the beginning of this meditation was quite relaxing, I found that imagining myself on a raft in the middle of the ocean was not, and the rest of this meditation didn't make me much calmer either. I had similar feelings about track three also, which features a snowy plain, but finding myself in the middle of a snowstorm wasn't very comforting I must say.

Despite this, I did enjoy the pre-meditation relaxation exercises and the cooldown was also very calming, but overall not the most relaxing of my meditation experiences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful relaxing CD!! Highly Recommended! 24 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
Wonderful relaxing CD. I have several of the meditainment CD's and this, like the others, is wonderful. The first one is to do with the ocean, the second for the rainforest and the third is in an snowy plain. The first and third meditations are particularly relaxing, and I find myself not wanting to come back to reality!!

Highly recommended, very relaxing and well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed......... 8 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
3 guided mediations of around 20 minutes each. I was sceptical as I had only just started meditating. I found the water one rather difficult as I don't like water and the idea of going deep into the water made my uncomfortable but I love the other 2 tracks - totally relaxing and refreshing at the same time. Take the time to listen carefully, clear your mind of its "every day chatter" and just concentrate on what you are hearing. I loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars My latest addition... excellent. 6 July 2008
By Cat
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is my newest acquisition from the Meditainment range and as with all previous cds, it works beautifully.

The sound is crystal clear, of a very high quality and the guided meditations do relax you to a point, where I am actually nodding off. (Do not use whilst driving)

The 3 tracks on this cd are very well produced and it does exactly what it says on the tin - 'helps you in dealing with stress, tension and worry as you become deeply relaxed and enjoy feelings of total contentment and complete peace of mind'

I have over the years purchased many relaxation tapes and latterly cds, even ordering tapes and videos from America before there was any such thing as the Internet to try and find something that actually helped to relax and calm the mind and I can safely say that the Meditainment range are the best I have found to date and really do work for me.

This was the first of the Meditainment CDs that I bought and at first listen I wasn't impressed. But I persevered with it and now I have all the Meditanment CDs, except for the smoking one and the intimacy CD.

What put me off this one at first, and if I had written a review back when I had only heard it the one time, I would have only given it one or two stars. Reason being, I did not like the first meditation at all, and even the second I had problems with.

The Ocean meditation, which starts the CD, begins very nicely. I liked the sound effects of being in the large hallway of doors, but found the idea of it being seemingly never-ending a little awe-inspiring, not exactly relaxing. But it's when it leads you through the doorway that I didn't like it. You are told that you are on a raft in the middle of the ocean with no horizon anywhere visible, which I'm sure many people would find very alarming. Hardly relaxing! Then, to make matters worse, you are told that you are sinking down towards the depth of the ocean! - What about people who can't swim or have fears about being marooned alone in the middle of the ocean? - And also you don't have any oxygen tank or mask so you'd have to be able to breathe underwater for quite a long time, seeing as you're swimming around with giant whales, something else that could also be a little worrying, especially if they were killer whales!
The narrator's voice talks about the fathomless dark depths of the ocean which the whales eventually dive on down into, and then you are allowed to go back up to the surface, but this seems to take a while so you are obviously very far down.

I only listened to this track once to begin with and always bypassed it on future listens, until I forced myself to listen again, months later.
